Your commercial gas safety responsibilities

The Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations 1998

“It's the duty of every employer or self-employed person to ensure that any gas appliance, installation pipe work or flue installed at any place of work under their control is maintained in a safe condition so as to prevent risk or injury to any person.”

That's why we think it is extremely important as an owner of commercial premises to be on top of the gas safety of the gas appliances in your commercial properties. It is in fact the law that these appliances are inspected annually.

Why gas safety matters

Gas safety is not only your legal obligation, it's also a serious health and safety concern if not given the attention it needs.

Every year in England and Wales there are around 60 deaths from accidental carbon monoxide poisoning and you're also putting your workforce at risk of gas explosions should you not give gas safety the respect and attention it needs.

That's why its crucial you have a registered gas safe engineer perform maintenance on your appliances. Otherwise they could end up damaging your appliances or in the worst case scenario, make the appliances dangerous which puts you and your employees at risk.

Business gas safety checks
